Ridiculous to the Savvy; Offensive to the Conscientious

Ridiculous to the Savvy
Offensive to the Conscientious

The word “damn” means damaged. Literally.
A descriptive when not a judgment.  A condemned
building is damaged, unsafe to be  in. Un-salvaged
—in need of  salvation I guess is how “damn”
transitions from description to judgment

SIN, too—“essence,” “being” :  from, esse
and hijacked over to the wild side.  Pity. Evil (upos):
up from below.  Good words gone bad.. That damned
moral sense.

When I question how I’m doing something rather
than just plain doing it, I throw a monkey wrench
into the process so to speak & interfere & interrupt.
Driving to Santa Cruz say, actually or merely in
manners of speaking: if I have second or third
thoughts about going there or ways to go,  my velocity
is significantly reduced by questioning and doubting,
doubling and messing up my moves on down the road.
Demoralizing as far as getRdone is concerned. Hush.

Furthermore, just as I did not think it worthwhile
to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave me
over to a depraved mind, so that I do what ought
not to be done. I have become filled with every kind
of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity.  I am full
of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. I gossip, 
slander, a God-hater, insolent, arrogant and boastful;
I invent ways of doing evil; I disobey my parents; I
have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 
Although I know God’s righteous decree that those
who do such things deserve death, I not only continue
to do these very things but also approve of those who
practice them.
